Bengaluru gets its first bi-directional protected cycle lane at SK road, Doddanekundi.
Story so far: The bi-directional protected cycle lane was made possible under the Sustainable Mobility Accords (SuMA) initiative, which aims to encourage sustainable mobility.
- The cycle lane project is a joint effort of the Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT), Bengaluru, Sensing Local, and residents of Doddanekundi. The project was initiated in 2020.
About the route: The bi-directional protected cycle lane connects two schools en route. This will ensure the safety of hundreds of children riding to school and the cyclists going to work.
What now: Multiple counters have been installed on the Outer Ring Road cycle lanes. Initiatives to improve the footpath in that area have been made. Currently, bicycle separators are being installed. The bicycle separators were designed and installed by Elemental Motor Works.
